You cant scan negatives on a regular scanner. You need either a slide scanner or a slide scanner adapter for your flatbed scanner. Once you have those things you will have no problem scanning a negative, inverting the colors in photoshop, and then printing it as a high rez image on your printer. I dont know if HP makes a flatbed slide scanner adapter but i know Umax does or at least used to. Theyre not especially abundant. If youre going to be doing alot of slide/negative scanning you will want to look into a dedicated scanner for it.

As for a reason you cant scan negatives or slides on a regular scanner: slides/negatives are transparent. The light projected at them from the bed of the scanner passes through them and is reflected by the white behind the slide. The best youll get is a muddy mess. Believe me, ive tried it..heh
